Washington will remain on rotation for the weekend, with right-hander Tanner Roark to take the mound Saturday night. That means Erick Fedde, the club's top pitching prospect as rated by MLBPipeline.com, will have to wait until Sunday to make his Major League debut. Edwin Jackson will start the other game of the doubleheader, though the Nationals have not decided which pitcher will start which game.
